13 ft trailer

I'm looking for a small (around 13 ft) trailer. I really like the little UHaul trailers, but I'm open to suggestion.

I can do pretty much any interior work myself. I have rather idiosyncratic ideas about comfort and convenience, so I'm not really interested in refrigerators, cooktops, separate bathrooms, etc. I'm also skeptical about the safety of aged wiring and propane, so a stripped out trailer is fine with me. (As I understand it, some of the small fiberglass trailers need the moulded furniture/cupboards/etc because they contribute to structural integrity. I just mean not having 'systems' is fine with me.) I do enjoy a project, as long as it's not too far beyond my abilities.

I can't do heavy work on the frame, axel, brakes, wheels, and floor. If any of that needs to be done, the price has to be cheap enough for me to pay a shop to do it. I could do some work on windows and glassing if I have to, but would prefer not.

I want a small trailer, probably about 13 feet. I'm completely flexible on sleeping accommodations.

At present I have a 2000 Ford E150 hightop van. It's a tough old beast, but with the weight of the hightop conversion, I want to tow something lightweight.

I'm in Michigan. I'm retired, so I have plenty of time to travel to pick up a trailer without worrying too much about distance, when the weather is good. Spring is coming! Probably anything within 1,000 miles is easy, and further is ok if it's a great deal.

I'm seeing a lot of the older 13-ft trailers listed for around $5,000. For that price, I'd expect everything to be in excellent working order.

This one just showed up. Looks like a big project but you can't beat the price. If you have interest make sure your state will issue a title on just a bill of sale. Raz

A good place to look.

The red section across the top of the home page has links to trailers for sale in the US and Canada. As illustrated by the Casita in many cases, they don't stay for sale for long. Happy hunting Raz

1983 13 foot Burro

I have a 1983 13 foot Burro that I will be posting very soon (this weekend in fact). I'm in the process of getting my photos. Brand new upholstery and curtains and flooring. Will price it at $2700 which is going to be a steal.

Cordially,
Mike
